My wife Molly is a herbalist and nutritionist and has been in practice for over 30 years. I say this because it provides context to this amusing telephone exchange we experienced recently.
Molly received a phone call from a removalist that we have used a few times in the past. Let’s call him Sam and he is a man of few words. We were not moving house at this time but here is how the call went.
Molly: Hi Sam how can I help you?
Sam: I’ve got a problem.
(Molly goes straight into practitioner mode thinking of all the sorts of issues that a man of his age might have)
Molly: What’s the problem Sam?
Sam: My truck’s broken down. (in a very soft voice)
Molly: Okay. (pause) That is a problem.
Sam: How are you placed for tomorrow?
Molly: Oh, I think you’ve rung the wrong person Sam.
Sam hangs up!
(Molly collapses into gales of laughter)
